Crashed In the Wrong Room

 My husband plays rugby, and occasionally some of his teammates come to our house for a few drinks after the club shuts.  They’re all lovely so it’s never a problem.

One night I’ve already gone to bed when my husband comes home.  Upstairs in our house, you can turn right at the landing for the spare room, or left for our room.  I’m kipping away, until I’m half-woken by my husband standing outside the bedroom on the landing.  He’s 6’3″ and muscular with spiky hair, wearing his club uniform, and he’s swaying in that classic manner of the drunken rugby player. 

“Hello darling,” I croon lovingly at him.  He staggers round in the very dim light, and crashes full length (and fully dressed) onto the bed beside me, rolled over to face the window.  Having no idea anyone else is in the house, I curl up behind him and stroke his shoulder.

“Darling?”  He grunts at me.  This isn’t like him, even when steaming, so I get closer, wind my arms around his neck and whisper, “Babe?”

You’ve guessed it.  He rolls over and he ISN’T my husband!  My husband is downstairs – this player took the wrong turning at the landing and thought he was in the spare room!  We both stared at each other in total shock, then I screamed and we both shot backwards to the edges of the bed.  He then passed out and snored.  My husband came upstairs and laughed like a drain, as did everyone else when they found out.

Poor man.  He’s usually the shy and retiring type and he was so embarrassed in the morning.  I’m used to rugby players so I thought it was hilarious – he definitely came off worse!   0911-09

OOOPS!  heeee heeee!   It was serendipitous he crashed like a fallen tree on the bed *beside* you.

    I could use an English-English translation:
    laughed like a drain?

    Now that I actually know some rugby players, this is doubly hilarious. Most of them are big, killers on the field, and lambs everywhere else. I imagined all of this in a New Zealand accent, which made it even more charming.

    Laughed like a drain= laughed very noisily- the sound is supposed to resemble a blocked drain clearing itself.

    LOL! I think that’s probably the best story I’ve read on Ehell yet!

    I love the OP’s attitude about the whole thing. This very easily could have been a snarky story about how rude the guys were, how the husband should have been offended on the wife’s behalf, etc. Instead, it’s a funny and charming story. If only every OP on this site were so reluctant to take offense!
